Gun Companies Leave New York Following SAFE Act
#1
Remington remains in NY but is pondering a move. Check out the end of the article. It explains how several men in NY have been arrested for having more than 7 rounds of ammo in their magazine, one while target shooting.

Nearly 10 months since New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) signed the SAFE Act, opposition to the law continues to increase, multiple gun companies have announced plans to leave the state, and a key provision in the law has been quietly delayed.

American Tactical Imports (ATI) announced it would be leaving the state and will be investing $2.7 million in its new facility and creating 117 new jobs in South Carolina.

ATI’s announcement follows the decision of Kahr Arms to relocate to neighboring Pennsylvania, citing “uncertainty” about gun laws following the passage of the SAFE Act.

I'm making it a point to purchase guns from companies that flee anti gun zones.., after they actually leave.

The qualifier is important.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I wasn't too happy when I realized my 1911 was imported by a company from NJ. ....then I was even angrier when I realized the Henry rifle I bought was made in NJ too.

What is it with gun companies residing in anti-gun states? Shrug

These companies have been where they are at for a long time, they are established, they have a mature work force who know what they are doing and put out a quality product, just saying, screw it, we are moving, is not an easy thing to do, the logistics and work force concerns are a nightmare to even think about, let alone actually doing it.

Exactly what was pointed out in an editorial in the September 2013 issue of American Rifleman. It's easy to say "boycott Henry, they're in New Jersey." Then again, considering that they just recovered from extensive damage from hurricane Sandy maybe the choice is stay put, stay in business, or move and maybe go out of business.
